It arrived rather promptly, however, it was not what we had ordered. We made a call back to have them bring us what we had requested, but they were...

I have been coming to the Boathouse for the last 10 years with my sister in law and it is the only place on earth that we truly relax. The location is second to none but it is the staff attending to our every need that really makes our holiday a dream come true. Congratulations Boathouse you truly are amazing.

Went here for a special birthday dinner r for my son. The staff were very friendly and welcoming... lovely ambiance, music, relaxed lighting, plenty of space... you're not squashed in like sardines. Good choices on the menu. Food was very tasty, good sized portions. It was quite pricey but for a special occasion it was worth it. Really nice setting...

Boathouse is a good deal for the crazy area which of Phuket which slows down at Kata beach. Hotel is clean, room offers everything you need, we stayed at level 1 and had access to the big terrace which was nice for chlling at sunset hours. Pool area is also good. Personnel was nice and friendly.

My family were all very sad we had to leave. PERFECT location and the staff were just BRILLIANT. With 'Phoo' cooking the eggs and 'Ngee making our fresh juices every morning for breakfast the day always starts well! Look for 'K' at the pool, he's a star! He made us feel like we were on holiday and had nothing to...

The atmosphere of the restaurant was so amazing with a nice view of Kata Beach. The food was well presented and tasted good enough to be recommended. The staff were extremely professional and knew well about their products.
